Abstract:  The relationship between the overall rate constant and the rate constants of particular reaction steps calculated by the method of quasistationary concen­trations has been compared with the results obtained by integrating the systems of differential equations of chemical kinetics and with the consequences ensuing from the Viěte theorem on roots of an equation. It has been established that the method of quasistationary concentrations is to be regarded as an approximate method for calculating the least (as concerns absolute value) root of the characteristic equation which is valid both for the linear and cyclic sequence of reaction steps.
